Student Research Symposium Oct 29, 2013

Students who were engaged in research in the College of Veterinary Medicine in 2013 presented a poster session on October 29 detailing their work. Sixty-one posters were displayed.

The poster contest was divided into 2 categories:

  1. Resident, post-doc, and graduate student projects
  2. DVM student, undergraduate, and intern projects

The Student Research Symposium is sponsored by Zoetis Animal Health.

A major purpose of this event is to recognize (and learn from) the efforts of students and trainees–veterinary students, undergraduate students, graduate students, and residents/interns – who contribute to the research mission of the college and profession.
